- Soak one cup of raw rice in water for about one to one and half hours and let it dry for a few minutes.

- Sieve this flour and keep it aside.
For preparing the dough for Adhirasam:
- Take a pan, add jaggery and water. Melt it at low to medium flame.
- Once the jaggery has melted into syrup transfer it to another fresh pan using a filter.
- Now let the jaggery thicken.
- To check the right consistency, take a small plate with water, drop a few drops of jaggery and try rolling it into a ball.
- If it is thick enough to roll then the consistency is perfect. Turn off the flame.
- Add the prepared rice flour to this gently, little by little and keep stirring.
- Add cardamom powder and dry ginger powder.
- Mix them well until the jaggery has absorbed the rice flour and it has become a loose dough.
- Once done you can let cool down to room temperature and transfer it to an airtight container.
- It is preferable to fry this dough into adhirasam on the next day to get a soft and perfect texture.
- You can store this dough at room temperature for 2-3 days too.
